Sakasama no Chou is one of my favourite songs, and I often listen to it whenever I’m in an introspective mood. It has a new meaning to me every time I listen to it because it’s a very poetic and symbolic song. You can’t take the lyrics too literally. In fact, it’ll just confuse you if you try to understand it on a literal level.
It’s a beautiful song. It makes me want to think about myself and my life. Because it’s poetic and symbolic, its meaning changes depending on my mood. When I feel down, it makes me reflect on the reasons why I’m feeling that way. When I feel content, it warns me that life is crazy and uncertain. When I feel burnt-out, it stimulates my creativity with its sheer symbolism.
As for the musicality, I love the guitars. I also think that SNoW’s vocals fit the song perfectly. It’s not powerful, but its not sweet either. Everything from the instruments to the vocals and of course the lyrics meld together to convey the frustrations and fears of life without completely losing hope.
Now you know that Sakasama no Chou (逆さまの蝶) by SNoW is a song that has a new meaning to me every time I hear it. How about you?
